Hi all,

Good to be here!

Not the most exciting question to start with but I'd really appreciate some advice as the pressure is on...

Gotta be in Toulouse by the end of the month to look for English teaching work and I'm looking for super cheap accomodation. I was thinking to approach the University there as I've heard they might put people up. It's been difficult to get info on that one. (My French is pretty bad so that doesn't help). Anybody in the know? I've also signed onto apparteger.fr of easyroom to find a flatmate but no luck yet. The hostels were jammed packed when I was there last and I need the space and silence to write on the old lap-top as well unfortunately. (That and I'm getting a bit of an old fart to be hostelling still ;)

If anybody has any suggestions or knows central Toulouse pretty well then that would be great.

Failing that I guess I'll turn up and try my luck...

Best,

Jonathan

Welcome to TP Jonathan! :)

I don't know much about Toulouse specifically, but I do know that most universities will put travellers up during vacation period, but once school is in session, dorm rooms are exclusively for students. I wish you luck with it, and I hope you can find a room somewhere!

Cheers,
Katie ;)

Hi Katie,

Thanks for the tip. Yes, I seem to remember that most Universities are open house during this period. Had quite a bit of bad luck recently so I guess I'm less spontaneous than usual!

I think I'll pop along and take my chances.
